25 deaf children from schools across Merseyside took part in the Panathlon Challenge Boccia tournament.
Knotty Ash A team won the primary section after going unbeaten all day, beating fellow team mates Knotty Ash D 2 – 1 after a Tie Break decider. Cavendish school (Pictured left) won the secondary age group competition.
Congratulations to all players in providing a competitive and friendly event, and thank you to all the staff and referees from LJMU and Greenbank College.
Event organiser James Dixon was delighted with how the tournament went and was encouraged to see so many deaf children taking part in this developmental event.
Julie Metcalf, Lead Teacher of the Deaf and Visually Impaired at Halton Borough Council said, “I just want to say thank you very much for all your time and hard work preparing these games. The children have such a great time meeting other deaf peers. We have had wonderful comments from parents and children on how much they enjoyed themselves.”
